    Default Feb/March Lite Challenge: Oh Tarn!

    Sorry I couldn't think of a snappier title for this thread/submission for this month's lite challenge. Normally with my time constraints I wouldn't be participating, but rivers and a River Police Badge I just couldn't resist.

    Here is my submission, in progress:

    I am not sure if the thumbnail tracker is working properly, since it only scanned my first image in my original post. So I will re-post my latest wip here.

    Looking good! The thumbnail picker just takes the first image from a tagged post, not the one after the tag.

    Wow, I've gotta say that this is pretty fantastic. Elegant in it's simplicity. I really love how you can see the elevation, getting that third dimension in there is really hard!

    Can't wait to see more. =)

    Here is another update for the river challenge.

    @torstan: I have to say that I find your tutorials a very good resource of knowledge and techniques. Thanks for posting them in the tutorial section. A lot of the ideas and inspiration used for this lite challenge come from your website.

    @Zarylin: Thanks for the comment. I am trying to show perspective and dimension with this map, so I am glad it is working. I also like to keep things simple with my maps too!

    Here is the latest wip

    I like the forests and trees, although I want to touch them up a bit more. All I need to do next is water/coast, the atmosphere and put some labels on this map.

    Nice. Though in my opinion, mountains need more work on shading/lightning.

    Looking great. I agree it needs more shading though, not only in the mountains, but also the sky and the sea!
    Good job though!

    Thanks for the comments so far. I agree with -Max- and dasneviano that the mountains needed more shading. I shaded them more to bring out the contour and texture of the mountains.

    This one will be tough to beat...but there's a small stream between the little island and the lake (only noticeable when you zoom in) that looks a little weird.

    @anomiecoalition: Yes! You noticed that too, eh? I guess I will have to fix that. I just noticed that stream moving in the wrong direction after I posted this one. I think that after I added the forest layer the contour of the land changed a bit, or at least the impression that it has changed occurred. I need to fix it.
